Skolkovo foundation published news back in April 2021 that Ian Nepomniachtchi uses Zhores Supercomputer to prepare for FIDE Candidates Tournament and FIDE World Championship Match against Magnus Carlsen. Peter Heine Nielsen wrote about the case which could be problematic as FIDE President Arkady Dvorkovich heads the Skolkovo Foundation. “If any from the FIDE leadership is helping a player this time, it should be declared“, said Nielsen. Dvorkovich decided to terminate the powers of the Chairman of the Skolkovo Foundation and focus on the development of educational projects, including within the ‘Greater Skolkovo’ framework in March this year, according to TASS (Russian News Agency) source.
